The Systems Subscription Status widget on the dashboard does not include hypervisors in the Systems total. A correction in candlepin has fixed this issue and hypervisors are now included in the total system count.

Description Corey Welton 2012-03-26 08:27:56 EDT
Description of problem:
The dashboard "System Subscription Status" widget does not appear to include hypervisors in its totals. These do show up (and show up as green) in Systems > All.  This apparent discrepancy, while possibly intended, is confusing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Register one RHEL system to Katello
2.  Manually create one system within Katello itself
3.  Register one or more hypervisors to katello - can use 'vsphere-virt-who-simulator.py' for this.
4.  Go to Dashboard and view "System Subscription Status widget"
5.  Go to Systems tab and view All systems.
Actual results:
* Dashboard shows system  from steps 1-2 above (likely in various states of compliance)
* Systems > All shows > 2 systems -- it includes the hypervisor(s) one has created, as green.

Expected results:
* Show hypervisors in Dashboard count
* It may well be the case that Dashboard widget is not expected to show hypervisors. I am not sure. But if it's not, we should include a small amount of text or a help bubble indicating that this count does not include hypervisors seen on the Systems page.
